It has been a solid year since rapper Big Sean turned 30 and disappeared from the music industry without a word. But now he's back and ready to open up about where he went.


Just yesterday, the I Decided artist turned 31 and instead of ringing in his new year with videos of partying and festivities, he took to Instagram to make a major confession.



In the three videos, Big Sean explains that this past year he,

"wasn't feeling like myself and I couldn't figure out why. I just felt lost and I don't know how I got there."

He went on to explain that his feeling "lost" instigated his search for a therapist as well as implementing meditation.

"I got a good therapist. I was blessed enough to talk to some super spiritual people. They made me realize one thing I was missing in my life, and the one thing I was missing was clarity."

The rapper concluded his videos explaining that he has found joy and love through independence.

"I started realizing, you can't depend on somebody for love and a good time and all that if you can't give it to yourself. I started doing things by myself, doing things I never thought I'd do, like going skydiving or whatever I thought was fun," he said. "In the midst I definitely rediscovered myself, found a whole new energy, and me being a source of it and not somebody else."

Many people are happy that he is back and feeling better than ever.

It's another ordinary day in America.

So of course that means we've already had a mass shooting or two before brunch.

And aside from the mass shootings, the number of single gunshot wounds or deaths is too high to count.

So let's discuss the aftermath.

Let's hear from the people who have faced the barrel of a loaded gun, or were just a casualty going about their day.

What happens after the bullet lands?

It's never attractive to gloat.

Nor does superiority ever come off as a particularly attractive attribute.

But, consciously or not, some people speak or behave in a way that immediately suggests that they think they deserve to be treated differently, i.e better than others.

Or that they believe they simply are better than other people.

A recent Redditor was curious what sort of behavior struck other people as elitist or arrogant behavior by asking:

"What screams "I am entitled"?"

There's something about the woods that creeps me out. Listen here, people: I'm a city guy. The idea of getting lost out there freaks me out. No thank you. I wasn't made for that. The rest of you who like to go camping and stuff? You do you. I'll stick with my running water.

But maybe I've seen too many horror movies. After all, if I saw some creepy stuff in the woods I'd definitely run in the other direction. And so would you, right? Right?

People shared their best stories with us after Redditor shantics asked the online community,

"What have you seen in the woods that you can’t explain?"

We're all not geniuses.

Everybody has varying degrees of knowledge and brain power.

And that is ok.

Though some of us are really lacking in any sense and every once and awhile people like to sugarcoat that fact when they call us out.

"Bless your heart."

That's a big one in the South. Means... "I like you, but Lord are you missing marbles."
